Mantis ID

Sorry for duplicate posts, I posted this in the reef section completely forgetting about the mantis subforum.

LFS ordered a mantis and looking for an ID. Doesnít much look like a peacock, pretty non the less.

Anyone ID?

It is a young O. scyllarus - probably a female.

Thank you.

She is going in my 30g display refugium. Iím going put some electrical conduit in there covered with epoxy and sand like Iíve seen others do.

Paramaters as of yesterday

35ppt
No3-5
Po4-0.01
Mag-1440
Alk-8.96

She will be at the wholesaler for an entire week. How do you think she will do?

A shot of the tank is attached I have not worked on it yet so I need to get started this weekend.

Any feedback or advise is appreciated.
